    I found some under the neighbors wood pile...boy he as mad. LOL.

    Golf courses, contractors, building supply, churches...well ok, maybe not churches, unless they got a REALLY big shipment in of communion wine.

    Check out your local hot tub dealer. The store where I bought my hot tub is always looking for someone to take them, and they are big, like 8' x 8' or so.

    No, just full of useless information and being in printing all my life, had to know where to get pallets to meet commercial/consumer/military specs. They all burn the same to me ;)

    Pallet Pete pursues pallets procured for free at produce / hardware product stores procuring pallets without pay. Proceed to pester produce / hardeware managers periodically and procure pallets providing pallet piles per plan. Pallets Pete's place of employment practically throws pallets at his posterior as well ! :p

    Pishaw Pallet Pete proceeds per plan pouncing on pallets persistently & painting 49 * 73 pallets pointlessly proving his prominence ! ;)

    Sorry Pallet Pete + Raybonz = Perfectly retarded ! ::-)

    I am done now

    Seriously check out all the local factories and stores ! Factories give away tons of pallets around here you have to pay to get rid of them so we put them by a road with a free sign or I take them.

    Pallet Pete painstakingly pacifies his procurement of pallets profusely.

    I can't compete with Pete ;)

    I can arrange for at least 100 of my pallets to go away if someone wants to drive to South Jersey!

    My neighbor out the road owns a sign company....he does some really big signs and such for businesses and what-not. Anyway, years back, he was contracted to help install the jumbotrons/scoreboard at Penn State's Beaver Stadium. I was coming home from work one day and passed his business and there was a MOUNTAIN of 'pallet' wood.......all 2x4's......stacked in his business driveway. So I said what the heck, I stopped in and asked what he was doing with them. He said if I wanted them, they were mine....but I had to take more that he had to remove from the jobsite. All or nothing, so to speak. I literally got several tractor-trailer loads of 'pallets' (when I say pallets, I'm talking each pallet was built out of 2x4's, literally dozens of them each pallet, some 8' long, some 12 and 14' and longer)! I paid for fuel to haul them back from Beaver Stadium, and I spent over a MONTH pulling spiral nails and staples out of those boards. I stacked and banded them in my basement and the following summer, I framed my entire 28' x 24' barn out of them! I also studded the entire upstairs of my addition with them! All top-grade lumber, too!

    My point is, do like the others said and ask around, I'm sure you'll find some for free, heck maybe even enough to build a barn!!
